tatlong araw ko na akong kumakain ng munggo, mang boy. pakiwari ko, malapit na akong maging munggoloid.
nalibot ko na ang buong mundo at sa bawat sulok, natikman ko ang ibat-ibang pagkain. masasabi ko, beyong a shadow of a doubt, based on the facts that cannot be denied, ang lechon kawali ng pinoy ang pinakamasarap sa lahat.
the trick to cooking really good binagoongan is to make the bagoong taste as subtle as possible. in food, as in life, sometimes it’s better for your main ingredient to keep a low profile.
so the question is… what is binagoongan in english?
sadly, our jew and moslem friends won’t enjoy the crispy pork belly experience
stir fried baby bok choi and rice goes well with salted duck eggs and tomatoes, especially when it’s raining. don’t ask me why.
salted duck eggs and tomatoes. this simple dish has been a staple in southeast asia for hundreds of years. you can’t go wrong with it.
think of it as balls with perspiration. hehehe.
i had lunch today at “Dude, where’s my curry?” – i almost chickened out because i am afraid of eating at joints where they can’t spell vegetable correctly. but after hesitating for 3 seconds, i chose my meat and my “vegtable” and had a madapaking great time.
salt and pepper pork chops that are better than Samwoo‘s. “sam who?” ang tanong ni mang boy. “kumain ka na lang”, ang sabi ko.
sobrang sarap, if i can say so myself.
ang tanghalian ngayon ay hatid sa inyo ng Dogzilla – “Not Your Typical Wiener”. i had a yaki dog. “what is a yaki dog?”, ang tanong ni mang boy. well mang boy, a yaki dog is a spicy hotdog topped with yakisoba noodles, bean sprouts, cabbage, green onions, okonomi sauce, ao nori, and red ginger on a king’s hawaiian roll bun.
masarap. ang lasa eh parang pinaghalong purefoods hotdog at pansit canton. oo mang boy, nagpacanton ako.
ang tawag ko riyen eh lumpiang supot
dinner is soft tofu and spinach, stir fried in garlic, chili, soy sauce and sesame oil. medyo maanghang ang timpla ko ngayon kaya malamang bukas ng umaga, bago pa sumikat ang haring araw eh mga limang beses akong uupo sa trono.
wok with faith in your heart and you’ll never be alone. faith in the wok.
